of the Royal Family gathered in this room to watch the first big military


parade of the Queen's brain. It's not just the good vantage point,


it's also a place steeped in history, as the office once occupied


by the Duke of Wellington. The family will be back here today,


following events from this window, as they enjoy the ceremony of


Trooping the Colour, to mark the Queen's official birthday on Horse


Guards Parade. That first parade took place just nine days after the


coronation. It was the first official engagement for the new


queen. 60 years on, the Birthday Parade will feature some rousing


Welsh tunes, as the Prince of Wales Company 1st Battalion Welsh Guards


provide the Escort and play a very prominent part in today's ceremony.


This time last year at these soldiers were deployed in


Afghanistan, which reminds everyone watching that they combine the


ceremonial duties with life on the frontline. Since last year 's


parade, 25 members of the armed forces have lost their lives serving


in Afghanistan. Five of them from the Household Division, three


Grenadier Guards, two Welsh Here, too, heads of the Armed


Forces, Sir Peter Wall and Sir David Richards among them, along with


representatives of many foreign nations, including the Commonwealth


member states. The Mall is lined with Union Flags to celebrate the


Queen's official birthday. There are 200 soldiers lining the route will


stop there are poignant reminders for the Queen of the loss of her


father, King George VI, at such a young age, and her late mother. At


Buckingham Palace, the Sovereign's Escort and the Mounted Bands are


awaiting to accompany the Queen and other members of the Royal Family to


Horse Guards Parade. Not long to go until the processions get under way.


It's a very good morning to Clare Balding.


Big T is with me now. What is your responsibility today?

Her Majesty comes on parade, I will pull the cord, three little


stitchers will pop and it will spring out. And this is your last


ever Queen's Birthday Parade. retiring. I'm a bit emotional, but


my family and friends have come down to see me. We hope it goes


perfectly. My special guest knows everything


there is to know about the parade. Formally Major General commanding


the Household Division. Last on parade in that capacity in 2007. He


is Major General Sir Sebastian Roberts. It's a great pleasure to


have you with us. Good morning.What are you looking forward to? That


ancient tradition of tradition and modern professionalism. The soldiers


achieved the remarkable standards in their ceremonial duties. All coming


together in this world famous celebration of our Queen's official


birthday. The last time the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards trooped their


colour was in 2008. Since then, they've deployed to Afghanistan.


We've been speaking to some of them about their recent tour.


soldiers need to be adaptable. For Guardsmen, that adaptability is very


stark. We go from wearing, combat clothing into scarlet very readily.


On our most recent tour of Afghanistan, the majority of the


Battalion formed the Police Mentoring Advisory Group. It was


their task to train and advise the police, from basic training all the


way going into operations alongside them. We'd get up at dawn and then


set off to our patrol base. When we got there, we'd go into our security


measures. We would then build a rapport with the police. The first


time was quite hard because you got the language barrier. It's trying to


understand people from a different culture. After a while, they are


pretty much the same as you. You do bond. Look for the rise and fall of


his chest. On one of these routine patrols we went to the checkpoint,


as we always did. Unfortunately, two of my guys were shot dead by a rogue


Afghan policeman, who was completely unknown to the checkpoint.


situation was the worst nightmare. He had casualties and a volatile


situation, which was threatening his mission. He was only six weeks into


it. We were back out very soon after the incident occurred. Two weeks


following this, I myself became a casualty from a gunshot wound.


essence of good leadership is you can rise above that sort of chaos.


That is exactly what Ben did. For that, he was very deservedly awarded


the Queen 's commendation. Queen's Birthday Parade has served


as a recovery vehicle for me. Me being on parade today is a tribute.


It's a very sincere form of flattery. When people can't quite


believe the standards of ceremonial drill that we provide in London are


done by hard, fighting men who'd been at the tip of a spear, and


we're very proud to have with us. The men of the 1st Battalion Welsh


Guards sharing their frontline experiences. Ben Bardsley, who will


be falling in with all the other officers shortly, has made a


remarkable recovery from those life-threatening injuries. He can be


forgiven if he is a little distracted today. He's getting


married to his fiancee in a weeks time. We wish them both well. The


Escort provided by Prince of Wales Company 1st Battalion Welsh Guards,


1st Battalion also providing the mental number to guard and No.3


Guard, which means there is a very prominent Welsh presence on


horseguards this year. Next to them, No.5 Guard, provided by F Company


Scots Guards. Earlier this year, they were providing the street


liners for Baroness Thatcher's funeral. No.4 Guard provided by


Nijmegen Company. Later this month, the Queen will present new colours


to the company at Buckingham Palace. 1st Battalion Irish Guards


started their six-month deployment to Afghanistan in April, but there


is a strong Irish presence in the massed bands on parade today. A


successful Birthday Parade depends on hundreds of men and women setting


the highest standards of precision and drill. The man in charge as


Lieutenant Colonel Dino Bosi. This must be an incredibly proud date.


Yes, but a little bit nerve wracking. We really hope we will be


able to live up to the high standards that our predecessors have


set. It about teamwork, but it's about you and your steed. This is


Winston. What sort of a relationship party built up? I've been riding him


since January. He's a real old stager. His 22, but he hasn't done a


parade before. This is a new experience for both of us. Is quite


elderly, isn't he? He is. He's 22. Other than counting teeth, we are


not quite sure when his birthday is. He is immensely calm. He is, but


he's also quite frisky. He will bounce along with the band quite


happily. He seems to really enjoy the music. I look forward to seeing


you together. I know that you and your men have been extremely busy.


For those based in London, one of the jobs has been to provide the


Queen 's guard. We have sent a camera behind the scenes to find out


parade. The Standard that is required for us on that parade is


nothing short of excellence. Drill is very much our bread and butter


while we are in London. The routine helps that. When the guys do the


Queen 's guard now, that's all about getting experience for the big match


and working together as a team. When they step out the gates to walk up


to the forecourt, the crowds are building up and its six to ten deep


down The Mall. It doesn't faze the guys. There's an opportunity for


guys to take their bearskins off, change their clothing and have


something to eat before they go back out into the sentry boxes. It is


quite nerve wracking when you look out and there are a couple of


hundred people watching you. Different faces, glaring at you,


wondering when you are going to move. Concentration is the hardest


thing. You focus on your job and try and do it right. There's little


things they can miss, maybe turn the wrong way or a belt may not be


sitting correctly. That's the high standards we require in the Welsh


Guards. I'm new here, it's my first troop. A lot to live up to because


all the boys have done it before. It's really nerve wracking. Being


Welsh, the camaraderie -- camaraderie is fantastic. Everybody


mucks in, it's like a brotherhood. My family think it's very funny that


I've got a bearskin on my head but they are very proud of me. The last


time I did it my girlfriend came down with my father and my mother.


It's a brilliant job, I love it. Welsh Guards taking pride in their

carefully at the birthday Honours list. Sir Peter Hall, the head of


the army, is one of those receiving an honour today. There are some


members as well in the household division. Major Nigel Owen awarded


the MBE and Warrant Officer Stephen Hill of the Coldstream Guards. Some


are being honoured as well, slightly closer to home. The entire team


wants to say well done and congratulations to Clare on her

crowds. Lots of people saying congratulations, which is lovely.


But more importantly they have been here since 7:15am this morning to


secure good spot to watch the Queen's Birthday Parade. At this

impressions so far? You referred to it being a Birthday Parade and we


are at that position now. It is a birthday celebration and the 63rd


Birthday Parade the Queen has been to, the 59th as monarch. She will be


impressed by the spectacle we have seen today. Every yard of this grand


ceremonial route along the Mall, designed by Sir Aston Webb. It has


featured in every event of her reign. She travelled along it on her


wedding day in 1947. Vast crowds were cheering. Other royal weddings


in the decades which have followed. It has been a feature on more sombre


occasions, her mother and father's funerals. And of course, every year,


the principal route from Horse Guards and back for the Birthday


Parade. 60 years ago this month the Mall was decorated with massive


coronation archers. On those days, the parade was held on a Thursday


but apart from that it is pretty much unchanged and that is one


reason for its enduring appeal. Her Majesty attends the traditional


ceremony of trooping the Colour. The massed is lead the procession


around the Queen Victoria Memorial. The Queen accompanied by the Duke of


Kent today, Roberts, just reminding us that the Duke of Edinburgh is


probably watching the parade in the London clinic. Yes, sadly, his Royal


Highness cannot be here today. not the first time he has missed


it. There have been a couple of occasions when he has been abroad on


business. The last occasion was in 1968. On that occasion the Queen was


accompanied by the Duke of Kent. He was not the Duke of Kent. The Queen

invited him to join her which is why King's Troop preparing to fire their


salute. For both the Queen 's official birthday and her actual


birthday it is marked by a royal salute. Today will be a 41 gun


salute. The ceremonial season has included royal salutes to march --


mark the accession to the throne, the Queen's actual birthday, the


coronation, just last Monday the Duke of Edinburgh's 92nd birthday.


The basic royal salute is 21 rounds. But the number of rounds fired does


depend on the place and the occasion. Today, it is taking place


in Green Park. That is a royal park so they add 22 the number which


the Birthday Parade is still extremely popular. And still brings


joy and excitement to young and old. Last year, the Diamond Jubilee year,


there was a vast crowd for the Birthday Parade. This year in the


60th anniversary of the coronation, Royal Horse Artillery firing their


41 gun salute for the Queen's more sunshine, thankfully, many


thousands of people making their way down from Admiralty arch to the


general direction of Horse Guards Parade, through Saint James 's


Park, down towards Buckingham Palace. The great expanse of the


Mall, down towards the Queen Victoria Memorial glinting in the


crowd. The Queen leads members of the Royal family out onto that


famous balcony ready for the fly past. If we look in the distance,


Huw, we might see the RAF. We think 30 aircraft, 13 different types.


Eight elements. The first element, the support helicopter Force,


Chinook and two Merlins, currently providing vital transport for


troops, medical aid and equipment for forces in Afghanistan. The


inspiring sight of the Lancaster bomber, part of the RAF Memorial


flight based in Lincolnshire. Sadly, we do not have the Spitfire


and hurricane fighters today because of the strong wind but the Lancaster


is a very powerful presence. I knew surely, this year, we are able to


see inside the Lancaster bomber as it makes its approach. A spectacular


view for us along The Mall and down towards Buckingham Palace where the


royal Family is watching. A broad smile from the Queen. The third


eyes and ears, if you like. The Typhoons are from Coningsby. The


impressive sight of the Seas 70 Oxfordshire. You cannot convey the

and VC tens. And then the climax of this fly past. The Royal Air Force


aerobatics team of the famous Red Arrows, led by Squadron leader Jim


Turner, team leader of the Red Arrows. The Queen acknowledges the


applause and cheers. She looks very happy. Prince Harry looking on. And


the Duchess of Cambridge smiling as the Royal Family make their way back


into the palace. The Birthday Parade of 2013 in this 60th anniversary of


the Queen's coronation is at an end. Another superb display on Horse


Guards led by the Welsh Guards and an equally impressive display by the


Highlights of the morning's military spectacle from Horse Guards Parade in London, when the Queen's Colour of the Welsh Guards was trooped to mark the Sovereign's official birthday. Introduced by Huw Edwards.
